On the edge of burnout? Here’s how to avoid going over

When Arianna Huffington collapsed at her desk and woke up in a pool of blood with a broken cheekbone and an eye that needed four stitches, the gig was up.  Sleep deprivation and exhaustion, two common signs of burnout, had caused her to crash face first into her desk.  It was an extreme wake up call.  Nevertheless she learned that a well-rounded life and high performance are not mutually exclusive and high performance is actually better for it.  This changed her approach to life and work as a whole.

Let your ambition guide you toward success and happiness

List five words you would use to describe yourself. Don’t worry about what you think others’ perception is of you.  Instead, look deep inside, and write down the words that describe your core being. I’m almost certain you won’t write the word ambitious.  I certainly wouldn’t have, before.  Before I started thinking about it; before…

Why long term success and quality sleep go together

I’m so tired I can’t think straight.  That was the thought confronting me at 11 am this morning.  I hadn’t even made it to the afternoon slump, and I was fading fast.  I would like to say this feeling is rare, but it is all too familiar. Without the boundaries of a traditional 9-5, it…
